Southwest Career & College Center


about the career & college center (CCC)

Here in the CCC at Southwest High School, we assist students by meeting them where they are at in building their own individual post-secondary plans; whether that may be going straight to work, considering a gap year, applying to college, and more.

We help prepare students for life after high school by providing resources, technology, and an open, community space to research and ask questions about the post-secondary options they consider. The Career & College Center Coordinators are available to connect and assist students with the following:

  • Post-secondary research, planning, and application assistance for 2 and 4 year college options, technical and short-term training programs, employment, apprenticeships, and more!

  • My Life Plan and Naviance*

  • College and worksite tours

  • College, career, and military representative visits at school

  • ACT test registration and preparation

  • FAFSA, Dream Act, financial aid and scholarship research

  • Resume writing, job interview, financial literacy, and other professional skills workshops

  • Job and internship opportunities

*NAVIANCE is an online platform where students access their My Life Plan (MLP): a portfolio where students can explore options and begin to plan their post-secondary education plan. Click the link above and login!


The CCC is open Monday-Thursday 8:00am-4:00pm (unless otherwise indicated). We are located on the 1st floor of the West Building, connected to the Counseling Office.
